  • Hopefully, you're creating a transform for the MSI as, from memory, CR is utlimately deployed from an MSI.

    If so, find the property "behind" the serial number text-box and use that either on the command line or in your transform.

    >is this a difficult application to package?
    As I say, it should be a simple matter of creating a transform so no.

Include the following property in the MST:


or else you could use the property in command-line.
